Before I was saved, something was missing in my life. I tried to fill it with a lot of other things or used things to try to make myself believe nothing was wrong. In 2002, I came to HDC to my mom’s wedding and they had the ABC’s as part of the ceremony. I’d never had the opportunity before or had it explained to me. Church was laughed at in my family and no other church I’d visited did an invitation either. So when I heard the ABC’s it felt right and I said the words of the prayer.
While I have continued to have struggles, it is the best thing I’ve ever done. Being able to turn to Jesus has gotten me through some extremely difficult seasons over the years.
I want to be baptized because Jesus calls us to be obedient in some specific areas. He asks us tithe, be baptized, to love one another, etc. I want to be obedient.
